- Couldn't be happier with the work! Review by Harry L.
I bought an A-2 jacket from US Authentic in 2007, the quality was outstanding. So when I decided to have my 28 year old Lakeland G-1 "copy" jacket repaired, I sent it to US Authentic for the work. Jacket needed new knitwork, lining and hand warmer pocket bags. Additionally, the jacket had a detachable "faux fur" collar that I've always hated due to the many buttons rubbing my neck and snagging on things, so I opted to have the collar replaced.
Shaul received the jacket late on Monday and it was on its way back to me Wednesday afternoon. I got it back today (Friday). Can't ask for faster turnaround than that! New knit cuffs and waistband are fantastic, likewise the new Bemberg rayon Thinsulate lining - you have to look **really** close to tell lining has been replaced, and it feels like silk. Shaul even removed the original diamond-shaped leather "Lakeland" label from the old lining and sewed it onto the new lining in the same place! And he duplicated the inside map pocket exactly, re-using the leather from the opening of the original pocket.
Only unexpected surprise was the collar replacement. I expected the entire collar to be removed, and a new one put on. But Shaul simply unbuttoned the detachable fur portion from the existing collar leaving the bare leather collar, and sewed Mouton fur in its place. This isn't what I was expecting, but thinking about it, it is really a better solution since the "drape" and shape of my 28-year old collar is preserved. And of course the leather of the collar is a perfect match for the rest of the jacket since it's original. And again, the workmanship quality is so fine you can't tell that the newly-added fur is not original.
I couldn't be more pleased with the work Shaul did, I'd recommend his services without hesitation to anyone with a treasured jacket in need of repair. (Posted on 7/11/14)

- excellent work! Review by tattooeddrumguy
- i cant say enough good things about the speedy repair work these folks did on my vintage g1. I needed the cuffs and waistband replaced. shaul recommended replacing the faux fur collar as well and I am very pleased that i did. there were also 2 small holes and some missing buttons that were taken care of at my request. my nicely broken-in 40+ year old jacket should last me many more years now. if you need top notch work done on your vintage flight jacket at a reasonable price, look no further than flightjacket.com . thanks a million!!!

- cooper A2 Air Force Jacket Review by jo
- my brotherinlaw gave this jacket to my husband as it didnt fit him any more, the cuffs were very worn and lining was torn, my husband found this website. well not only was the service fast, delivered back to us in a week but the quality of the repair was absolutely astonishing. the lining is better than the one in there. my husband was amazed that every tag and original label was sewn back in, i will have to ask my brotherinlaw now the history of this airforce jacket i believe he purchased in the 1980's, my husband is thrilled with the restoration!!

- Extremely Fast & Extremely Good Review by Bradley Field, USAAF
- I purchased one of US Authentic's A2s second hand...the zipper eventually needed replacement and I wanted the maker to do the job. I received notification that the jacket was being SHIPPED BACK to me the day after it was received by them; can't ask for quicker turn-around than that. Communication was similarly quick. The work, when received, was first-rate. Thank you! (Posted on 12/13/12)
